Southport’s Charlie Schott (52) drew raves from coaches for his line play on offense for the Cardinals.
Southport’s Charlie Schott earned 6A all-state football recognition from the Indiana Football Coaches Association despite the Cardinals’ 0-10 season. The closest Southport came to winning a game was against Terre Haute North, 28-21 on Oct. 1 at Cardinal Stadium.
Schott was named a member of the 2021 6A all-state football team and also was named a member of the Conference Indiana all conference team for the second time.
He played offensive line where he had 36 pancake blocks and also was called upon to throw a pass for 32 yards. He also shined on defense where he blocked a fieldgoal and had a quarterback sack.
Even with the Cardinals winless season Charlie was still honored for his outstanding ability and leadership. He even played special teams as a punter where he averaged 31 yards a punt.
“Charlie will be successful in whatever he decides to do and where he decides to play college ball. He and I made a goal last season for him to be all-state and he was able to accomplish this goal through his work ethic, passion, intensity and his teammates,” said offensive line coach Micah Brown.
He also added, “Charlie has always been a very gifted player and one of the most athletic offensive lineman I have ever had the pleasure to coach. He hasn’t made his college choice yet, but is drawing interest from Marian University and UIndy.
